it didn’t start this way and it didn’t end this way either,
this day and week and even month, but
everything beyond the bells and
responsibilities reminded me of the fact
that in the absence, there’s a presence.
the One who once gave all of it to us
and entrusts others and also me with other skills and
knowledge and anecdotal value wants
every one of us to glow and shine and float.
it is then on us to do with it what we must
and can and want and will to multiply
what we have been given and share
it among the lowest.
so I take my bags and travel under sunny, crisp, blue
skies afoot and humble and sobered
and supremely excited as well
just to grasp yet again and this time for good that
it’s massive and it’s vast and above all:
it’s all love.
